{Home Tour: French Farmhouse}

I didn't believe it possible to love the French Farmhouse look anymore than I already did, but as soon as these images from Karine over at BODIE and FOU landed in my inbox I was swiftly proven wrong! Karine and Steve's family home has already been featured in countless interiors glossies, including Grand Designs and The Telegraph magazine, so I'm excited to share with you what I love about their farmhouse. For me, it's all about the fresh and modern take on the space - no cliches, just pure, relaxed style with one bold hit of colour, which allows for the muted palette that runs throughout the majority of the space. That hit of colour comes in the form of the best shutters I have ever seen; aren't they wonderful...I'm guessing I won't be the only one who is dying over them right now?!  The shutters' bold blue colour emerges in softer, lighter hues in several spaces throughout the rest of the house, which ties the space together with such ease. Even their inspiration wall displays various hues from the blue family. A pure delight.

  11. I have been absolutely taken with the whole farmhouse/bungalow/cottage feel this summer, and this little gem is just feeding that obsession! So terribly cute and perfectly appointed. Love the pops of color! I can just see lazy summer afternoons with a Pimms in hand!
